Got 3 of these - 2 for gifts to some clients who love to fish - they really liked it as it is a nifty tool and easy to make a knot.I havent used mine, but it seems like it will work well. It is very sturdy. We will see how it performs in saltwater environment.
For the fly fisherman, or someone that drags a plastic lure around a lake, this tool is a game changer. I'm older than dirt and as blind as a tourist in a petting zoo full of alligators, and this tool allows me to complete the job of knot tying in seconds.
Love this tool works great I always have it around my neck it helps that it's retractable for an in a rush kind of guy like my self I haven't used it to make a quick knot because I just have my preferred knots I use but the part you put the hook to is the best thing they thought of bought one for myself - love ed it - bought another for my mate who loves it too. makes a real neat not easy to tie. they thought about this when the made it and designed it. essential fly fishermans tool.
I used to have a hard time tying the knot. It was a bit embarrassing because my fishing buddy has no problem with it at all. i could spend some time struggling with my knot while he's busy doing the actual fishing. i blame my unsteady hand. since i bought this tool, i became faster and faster tying my knot. not only it was quick but also it's beautiful knot. i didn't know i would enjoy having a nicely done knot. Compared to the other high end tool. This knot tying tool does the job at half of the price. Material since to be very resistant well out together. if you ever have a problem tying your hook or whatever, just do yourself a favor and buy this amazing tool
My Dad loves this! He is getting up there in his age and has to use his reading glasses alot to tie his lines but this tool really helped him out. A great gift for any dad who fishs! Super helpful!
This is my third one of these because I keep dropping them in the water lol. These make tying knots a breeze especially when you're using tiny hooks for trout. You simply hold the hook and twist a bunch of times and make a clinch knot. It cuts up to 10 lb line with ease after that it's better to use this just for tying knots and some bigger pliers for bigger line. I have not used it yet for fly fishing but I will later on. Feels well made too which is of course one of the most important aspects.
Yes, that's the only reason I bought this tool for was the nail knot jig. It makes excellent qualitys knots. I've yet to find a knot that holds better when splicing braid & flouro/mono together that the nail knot splice. It's been used for hundreds of years and for good reason. I use a nail knot in one form another 99 percent of the time. I've pulled 80+ pound cats from the bottom and never had one pull out once it's PROPERLY seated... The nippers are great for mono or flouro but do have a problem with braid, like most nippers. Everthing else is perfectly fine....
Definitely my favorite fishing gadget now. Easy as pie to clip on to a belt loop of my jeans or shorts, and the retracter device is perfect balance of good tension and retacting. Havent used the knot tying gizmo on it yet because my hands are still dextrous enough to get 3wt knots fine, but I imagine it works just fine. Mostly just use the clippers and the retracting leash.
